Police said a woman was arrested and charged with DUI after she drove the wrong way on U.S. 19.
The incident occurred early Sunday.
Police have video of the incident and claim the 43-year-old woman was driving north in the southbound lanes near Klosterman Road. She apparently passed an officer, who turned around and stopped her.
Before she was stopped, police believe she hit the bumper of a vehicle that tried to avoid her.
The man and woman inside that vehicle were not harmed.
